Diamondbacks Executive’s Baseball Card Collection on Display at Cooperstown

Most true collectors will talk glowingly about their card collections no matter if they buy solely retail packs from the local Target or high-end singles. They will also be able to specify the best cards in their collection and even include a story about where the cards came from. Card collecting is not limited to one specific demographic or age. Even those affiliated with professional teams can be collectors.

Ken Kendrick is a perfect example of this. He's the managing general partner of the Arizona Diamondbacks. He also has a serious baseball card collection. Kendrick has been collecting for years and has accumulated over 100,000 cards. His collection is so impressive that an exhibit in the Baseball Hall of Fame features 30 of his most valuable cards. The vintage cards are staples of collecting and include such gems as Hank Aaron, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays and Sandy Koufax rookie cards. According to Kendrick, he has one of only three known 1951 Mickey Mantle "Gem Mint 10" cards. The main attraction in the collection would have the be the famous 1909 T-206 Honus Wagner card that Kendrick bought for more than $2.5 million in 2007. The card was once owned by hockey-great Wayne Gretzky and has been the focus of a book questioning whether or not it has been altered.
